This is really good and robust. Not an average cup of Chai~oh No!
Please try it with honey to bring
the full complexity of it through fruition.
I taste the Ginger in it first & most predominantly.
Thank God for the Ginger this morning as
my tummy was really hurting when I woke up.
The Cinnamon and the Cardamom
make the Ginger more complex and palatable.
The Sweet Potato and Peppercorn are far more subtle
and the honey…draws it all the way out.
There is not enough vanilla in it for me to taste, but enough
to make it creamy. This is the dark and spicy chai
you are dreaming of folks.
If you are a Chai lover…call Verdant and ask for this…
It might not be available YET,
but with all this fuss…surely it will be in everyone’s fortune cookie <3
I did not mention some of the other ingredients, but that is not that they did not contribute.I believe the making is in the mix ;-)
I steeped for 2 minutes and added 2 tsp honey and
a tablespoon of cream
(vs the 1/3c. of milk listed on the TOMBC sheet)
This is likely something you have to play with yourself as I suspect most people have a peculiar preference
as to how they prefer their Chai.
Try it your way~ you cannot go wrong :-p

The lingering aftertaste has a earthy taste of the burdock root
with ginger and a subtle hint of saffron…the aftertaste alone will leave you begging for more.

You had this the same way I love it too! This isn’t like every other Chai, not a better version of an old favorite but really unique. I also called and emailed David and Lily because this is so good.

I am going to send them a facebook message about this one as well! I still have to try it stovetop, I am hoarding it just in case it doesn’t become available, I don’t want to run out of this one! Love the earthiness and the ginger. I need to try it with honey too!

CelebriTEA

Loved your note, Bonnie~ made me try it!
Miss Lena, I don’t blame you for hoarding it :-)

CelebriTEA

Ok, I just did a resteeping of this for an afternoon dessert…
Very rich and fulfilling Bonnie was so RIGHT~
Not like any other Chai, and this NEEDS to be a regular.
I just feel so bad for anyone not getting to try this….Special Chai
